colleague jonathan capehart actually pointed out this week, autopsies are done on dead things. so there you go. joining me now is msnbc contributor and "washington post" opinion writer, jonathan capehart. staff writer for par dor pandor daily, david sirota. you guys generally do pretty well talking to women. let's take it step by step, okay? >> okay. >> all right. here's the thing about women. no matter the message, it's the policies. like, they still just don't seem to get that. if we, you know, if we look at them -- i just want to play something ken blackwell actually said this morn ing. i don't think he got the sensitivity memo, though. >> at the end of the day, republicans don't have a problem working and talking with women. we control 30 of the governorships. we control 26 state houses and -- and senate chambers. you know, we, in fact, know how to speak to women on their policy issues. >> okay. so the message i took away from that was, like, we don't have to know how to talk to women because we're in control. basically. if you look at, jonathan, what's been going on at the state level

the people next to us begging for money and he said that that's okay for them to beg. >> so, jonathan, telling a kid to beg begs this question. are we teaching our kids to be takers instead of makers? >> kids and man in general are inclined to trade, not to beg. we're the thinking animal we want to trade value for value, not conquer and beg and ask for favors from other people. this young girl, this young person just like a lot of young people whether it's lemonade stands or roadside sales, they're excited about the idea of making something and having somebody pay them for it. those are the type of values we should be teaching, independence, self reliance, not more dependency from uncle sam. >> can you believe that park ranger told her she couldn't sell her mistletoe? >> it's ridiculous. we should be promoting these kinds of things in is great this girl did this. unfortunately i will not be surprised if we find out uncle sam comes knocking on her door next year asking for money. this perfectly reflects what's wrong in this country right now. there are too many rules, too many regulati

effects. i was telling jonathan that i think it is not that government is inherently stupid, although that is a debatable point. it is that they do not get the right incentives. the business would be run this way because you would be run out of business immediately. we have put into law perverse incentives. people who had cheap insurance no longer can buy that. it is what they could afford and that is the only way they had it. i was one of them. i used to have family coverage for five people, for $5,000. a $5,000 deductible. in obamacare, you can have a higher detectable and still pay $20,000 because there is a mandate built into it. the problem is the insurance company is never going to offer those policies again because they are told within a year, if you delay it for year, then in a year everyone will be forced to buy the new policies, which are more expensive. let's say you sell bread and you sell for a dollar a loaf, and they say, we're going to force everybody to buy for two dollars a loaf, but you have to continue selling it for dollar. the problem is the young healthy people w
